Kevin Owen McCarthy was born in Bakersfield, California. His mother was a home maker and his father an assistant fire chief. He is the first Republican in his immediate family – his parents were members of the Democratic Party.
McCarthy attended California State University, Bakersfield, where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in marketing in 1989 and a Master of Business Administration in 1994.
In 1995, he chaired the California Young Republicans and from 1999 to 2002 chaired the Young Republican National Federation.
McCarthy was elected to the California State Assembly in 2002 and was elected to the United States Congress in 2006.
He has served as the U.S. representative for California’s 22nd congressional district from 2007 to 2013 and for the 23rd district since 2013; and as House Majority Leader from 2014 to 2019.
On November 19, 2021 he talked (Mercury – the cosmic chatterbox – is his dominant planet) for 8 hours and 32 minutes setting a record for the longest continuous speech (Sun is in house 9) in modern history – his claim to fame (Sun). The speech was described as a meandering and at times nonsensical monologue that had some senators dozing off.
McCarthy supported Trump’s false denial of Joe Biden’s win in the 2020 presidential election and participated in efforts to overturn the result. Later he condemned the attack on the US capital on January 2, 2020 and said the 2020 election was legitimate.
He led the Republicans in gaining control of the House in the 2022 midterm elections.
McCarthy and his wife, Judy, have two children.
